During the class, we will conceive and produce works as different as unique story-telling images, and cover techniques on how to produce works in stenciled editions, pop-ups, dimensional work, or wearable sculptures. Using different papers and tyvek, experimenting with scale, we will keep an open mind to adapt them to other materials and explore new territories.
